9/11: The Ultimate Triumph of the Strategy of Tension (II)

10.09.2011 | 00:00 | Wayne MADSEN (USA)
Few media outlets reported on Bin Laden’s longstanding ties to the U.S. intelligence community, links that were maintained after the 1993 bombing of the World Trade Center… Bin Laden’s past ties to the CIA may have sealed his fate. Just as with others who worked for the CIA and were then discarded like garbage, including Manuel Noriega, Saddam Hussein, and Muammar Qaddafi, Osama Bin Laden may have been used as a convenient decoy by the actual perpetrators of 9/11… those who saw a continued strategy of tensions to bring about their agenda. The strategy of tension would not end with 9/11 and would be repeated in the following years in Madrid, London, Bali, Beslan, Jakarta, Istanbul, Casablanca, Mumbai, and Oslo…

Skull of Bin Laden Grinning to Kingdom Come

09.09.2011 | 17:31 | Pyotr ISKENDEROV
“.. The story of how an al-Qaeda asset turned out to be the top Libyan military commander in still war-torn Tripoli is bound to shatter – once again – that wilderness of mirrors that is the “war on terror”, as well as deeply compromising the carefully constructed propaganda of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization’s (NATO’s) “humanitarian” intervention in Libya”, wrote Asia Times. “Ten years after 9/11, it’s hard not to imagine a certain decomposed skull in the bottom of the Arabian Sea boldly grinning to kingdom come”… The vision is absolutely correct…

9/11: Unanswered Questions (I)

09.09.2011 | 10:10 | Wayne MADSEN (USA)
The biggest conspiracy theory of them all, the official 9/11 Commission Report that concluded that nineteen, mostly Saudi, hijackers, armed with box cutters, were able to defeat a multi-trillion dollar U.S. defense and intelligence system in a matter if mere hours one Tuesday morning in September 2001, has even been partly debunked by the two co-chairman of the 9/11 Commission, former New Jersey Governor Thomas Kean and former Indiana Democratic Representative Lee Hamilton. Both have said that their committee was lied to by government officials and that important information was covered up and not released to committee investigators…

US War on Terror: Provocations, Mystifications, and Illusory Feats

08.09.2011 | 00:00 | Nil NIKANDROV
A decade ago, the World Trade Center was destroyed in “a terrorist attack” on September 11 in New York. Contrary to all efforts made by the Empire’s propaganda and (dis)information machine, the belief in the complicity of hawks from G. Bush’s Administration in the whole story did not recede from public discourse but, instead, gained tens of millions of followers worldwide…

Taliban’s New Strategy

07.09.2011 | 10:06 | Aurobinda MAHAPATRA (India)
If Taliban head Mullah Omar’s recent Eid ul-Fitr (marking end of Muslim holy month Ramadan) speech serves any indication – it is Taliban’s latest strategy to regroup and enhance its prospects to rule Afghanistan but in a new format…

Medvedev in Ulan-Ude and denuclearization of Korean peninsula

07.09.2011 | 00:49 | Alexander VORONTSOV, Oleg REVENKO
The recent visit of Kim Jong-il to Russia and his brief meeting with President Dmitri Medvedev in Ulan-Ude continue to stir interest in political circles… Since the collapse of the Soviet Union, Pyongyang’s nuclear program, however it may affect the global non-proliferation regime, has been the only guarantee that North Korea won’t repeat the fate of many states, starting from Yugoslavia and ending with Libya which were chosen by West as targets…

It is going to be Israel’s loss

06.09.2011 | 17:13 | Melkulangara BHADRAKUMAR
 Turkish-Israeli relationship has taken a beating that will take much time to recover…All of this would have serious implications for Israel’s security at a time when the Sinai is on the boil and there is a crescendo of opinion building up in Egypt against the 1979 peace treaty with Israel…Where Israel loses most is that it is losing friendship with a major Muslim country. The only remaining friend of Israel in the Middle East today is the embattled king of Jordan and even he is going to hide his bonhomie with Tel Aviv. Put plainly, Israel’s regional isolation has become very acute…

Europe’s «Anti-Totalitarian» Cause

06.09.2011 | 10:45 | Yuriy RUBTSOV
The thinly veiled agenda behind World War II revisionism is to undermine the reputation of today’s Russia. The invectives against the Soviet regime which evaporated decades ago combine into an arrangement for a “Nuremberg trial” to be faced by the modern Russia. This is the real reason why the country is showered with allegations that its administration holds on to the “totalitarian past”, with territorial claims, and with outrageous compensation demands…

Colonial Wars Over The Greater Middle East

05.09.2011 | 00:05 | Yuri GAVRILECHKO
A new life – or, rather, new deaths – await Libya in the wake of the seizure of Tripoli by anti-Gadhafi mercenaries backed by NATO special forces now that Gadhafi has retreated to his hometown of Sirte. The country will obviously be carved up – after the Libyan rebel “government” declared war on Algeria, the natural resources of the entire North Africa are at stake and a new colonial war over them is on the horizon…

The American Tsunami

04.09.2011 | 08:50 | Rafe MAIR (Canada)
For while The US had made forays into overseas countries before – the invasion of Lebanon in 1958 and its involvement in the Balkans in the 90s come to mind – 9/11 conferred on them, in the minds of the US “establishment”, the right indeed obligation to intervene in foreign lands without even tepid approval of the United Nations…9/11 was much more than a tragedy that killed 3000 people – it was the catalyst that eroded, likely forever, America’s democratic principles and confirmed, in their minds, the right to do as they damned well please in other people’s countries…
